Abstract


In the present days most of the people are suffering from anger and anxiety at some point in time in their life. Though getting anger is common for many but frequently getting anger, continuing the same for a longer period of time, has an adverse effect on the human body. Suffering from Anxiety may enable the fight or flight mode of the central nervous system. This elevates the blood pressure for shorter period of time. There may be different reasons for a person to suffer from anger and anxiety, but if it is chronic it may elevate blood pressure of a person. If the elevated blood pressure is more than the normal range, it is considered as high blood pressure (HBP) or hypertension. In this paper we considered anger level and anxiety level of a person to predict whether the person is prone to HBP or not. Anger and anxiety level of a person is measured using response obtained from the set of predefined questionnaire. We considered 1000 records For Experimental analysis, where each record consists of anger and anxiety level of a person along with systolic, diastolic and mean arterial blood pressure. Experiments are conducted using various machine learning algorithms. We used 50% records to train the model, 50% records to test the model. Results unfolds that there is significant influence of anger level and anxiety level in elevating the blood pressure.
